Glider was deployed on 30-Apr-2014 by Adam and Kacie with the OceanTracker. Water samples were taken at 1 and 21 meters. It was sunny with a slow 1.5 meter swell.

There was an issue with the reported oddities in the surface dialogue. The number of oddities in the current mission was reset to zero somehow between the 2014-05-05 09:00 and 15:00 surfacings. I downloaded an mlg file corresponding to that time period to examine the pattern, but there didn't appear to be any problems.

At 6:00 pm (local) I updated the waypoint list for the glider to start an infinite triangle loop close to recovery. I did this so that if the glider acheived the last waypoint before there was a chance to recover it it would continue to sample science data.

At 6:16 pm (local) I update the waypoint list. I gave the glider a waypoint close to shore to facilitate recovery tomorrow (20th-May).

At 5:21 am (local) The glider came to the surface because it hit a waypoint, and since it only had one waypoint, it finished the mission. The glider was about 1.7 km from the waypoint so I updated sufac06.ma to tell the glider to come to the surface every hour instead of 6 hours and then restarted stock.mi.
